NetgearDG834G router won't accept new settings

I have recently had trouble logging into my Netgear DG834G router via an Apple Mac G4. My other G5 mac's had no problem. I reset the router to the default settings and now it won't accept a new password. The region constantly defaults back to United States. It works fine without a password for all my mac's now but I have an unprotected network. Anyone any ideas?

My camcorder won't work with our apple mac g5-cs3 computer


The problem is not with the camcorder. The problem is with the capture settings.
You can capture video via firewire or USB. Imovie has a capture mode that syncs with nearly any camcorder. Roxio Toast will also sync with a camcorder. Be sure the camcorder is connected and that the computer recognizes it. It may take a few on-off cycles to sync itt.

Trouble connecting Power Mac G4 Airport saying "invalid password"


WPA is supported by both the Airport Extreme and Mac OS versions 10.3.
It's possible you need to change your encryption specification on the Netgear to "Shared Key" instead of the default "Open."

Have lost the the security code they gave us when the router was changed. how do we find it or change it. the router is netgear DG834G it won`t let us log on any more lap top without the code


Before resetting the router, please try the user name 'admin' with the password 'password' or '1234'. These are the default user name and passwords for Netgear routers. If neither of these work, there is a small black button on the back of the router with 'Reset' written by it. Press this down and hold it for approximately 40 seconds, or until you see the lights blink on the front. Now you can access the router via your web browser using the default settings. All settings will need to be reinserted into the router. I will post a How-To on how to do that today.

Good Luck,

Have lost/can't remember the security code to wirelessly connect to my netgear DG 834G


Paul.

Can you connect to the router via ethernet?

If so assuming you havent changed the routers address connecting to 192.168.0.1 from your web browser should get you into your routers admin page.

Once you have entered the user name and password click the Wireless link from teh main menu where you will be able to see the relevent key and or change it if required.

If you need the manuals you can download from here.

Connecting Ipod touch 8(GB) to Wi-fi


After fighting with this for the last couple of hours I have my ipod touch working with the netgear DG834G(v3) router. The fix is a bit odd and I am not entirely sure why it works but I thought I would share and hopefully it might help you out …

First I think that the WEP encryption simply does not work between these two devices and causes some very strange behaviour – the WEP 'authentication type' setting I had on the 'wireless settings' page was set to 'shared key' – I flicked this to 'automatic' & strength to ‘128 bit’ - hit apply and finally I found I was able to connect without an error message (after inputting the correct WEP key). Unfortunately the DHCP did not work correctly after this and I kept receiving IP addresses in the range of 169.254.x.x (an internal default) rather than my networks expected 192.168.0.x range. The Ipod touch couldn’t find any DNS servers or connect to the internet.


To get round this I set the router ‘security options’ to use WPA instead (WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)) instead of WEP. Set the new WPA password at the bottom of the wireless settings page - again hit apply - and configured the ipod to use the new password and WPA PSK instead of WEP. This worked fine – although it does mean I have to change the settings on all my other wireless devices around the house!

The weird thing is that although the router isn’t using WEP encryption changing the 'authentication type' setting back to ‘shared key’ in the WEP menu breaks the WPA connection again – very odd? I blame netgear and their obviously crazy wep code :)
